The cast for director Matt Reeves’ (Let Me In) upcoming sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes continues to fill out.  Jason Clarke was the first to join the project as the male lead earlier last month, and he was joined shortly thereafter by Gary Oldman and Kodi Smit-McPhee (The Road) in the ensemble.  Now Variety reports that Keri Russell is joining the cast, presumably as the female lead.  The film takes place 15 years after the events of the first movie, and the story is said to be split between a small human colony struggling to survive alone in San Francisco and Caesar’s (Andy Serkis) attempt to maintain dominance over his kingdom.

No details are given regarding Russell’s role, but we know that Oldman is poised to play the leader of the human colony.  Russell has some history with Reeves, as she previously toplined the popular television series Felicity which was created and run by Reeves and J.J. Abrams. The actress is coming off a strong return to television with FX’s excellent 1980s Russian spy series The Americans and was most recently seen on the big screen in Dark Skies.
